10:00pm
essentially, our country is going to hell and we have this political correct-- you can't call a >> i love what i am doing, you know, i love it the most. i am so disappointed with what's going on in the country. i am so disappointed with our politicians -- and our republican politicians. i am so disappointed at the opportunities. so we will just have to see. it's a long time. we have a president. we have to to support the president. that's the way the country works. but i am so disappointed at what's happening in washington. so we will see what happens. >> sean: mr. trump, a pleasure.
10:01pm
>> good to see you. >> sean: thank you for being with us. let not your heart be troubled. greta's next. see you back here tomorrow night. greta? >> greta: senator sessionses is here and "on the record" starts right now. >> i can be the think of a better person to work at the treasury. >> he is very political. >> he already has a lot of opposition, especially from jeff sessions. we can't have somebody who can't acknowledge and look the american people in the eye and tell them the truth about our
10:02pm
financial condition. >> i just his judgment. i value his friendship. i know very few people who have greater integrity than the man to my left. >> they think that spending is not the problem. wastefulful government spending is the problem. >> prosecutors say arias had one last tryst with travis alexander, killed him in a gun and knife attack. >> it's not a case of who done tit's a case of kill or be killed. >> the charge of placing a victim of terrorism, when you shot him in the head and then slash him. >> death of nfl great junior seau, doctors revealing their findings. >> junior seau who committed suicide suffered from chronic brain damage. >> severe brain damage. he suffered damage to his very brain cells itch the latest on the disappearance of victoria masony. >> 400 people in flame, boats
10:03pm
and helicopters scouring the waters off the coast of venezuela for the better part of seven days. they have not found any sign of wreckage. >> the family has become convinced that they are still alive. now masony's eldest son is hinting to an italian paper that his father may have been kidnapped. >> all that and much more. but first, a top republican on the senate budget republican committee vowing not to allow jeff lieu to become treasury of secretary, accusing him of misrepresenting the impact on the budget, referring to a bitter 2011 senate hearing. >> you said in your interview sunday with candy crowley, our budget will get us over the next several years to the point where we can look the american people in the eye and say we are not adding to the debt any more. we are spending money that we have seech year. then we can work on bringing
10:04pm
down the national debt. was that an accurate or misleading statement to the american people, sunday? >> senator, i think it's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt. we do have interest payment, it is going to take awhile -- >> well, you didn't say that. >> you said we will be bringing down the debt during the period of this budget and we can look them in the eye and say we are not adding to the debt anymore -- that's not accurate. >> i believe it is accurate. our current programs, the things we are making decisions on, we have stopped spending money we don't have. we can't wish the national debt away. >> greta: senator sessions is here. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> greta: senator, am i right in my characterization that -- that have you accused jack lew of lying to the senate? >> look, he came in and testified to represents the most colossal, fantastical financial
10:05pm
misrepresentation, i think, in history. he said that debt, he told the american people square on, that we would not be adding to the debt, we would spend only the money that we have and begin to pay down the debt. that was utterly untrue. his budget did nothing like that. the lowest deficit in 10 years that he projected in his own numbers was $600 billion deficit and would have added $13 trillion to the debt. remember, this is after 2010 when the republican house was elected and hopefully, we were in a point to make some fundamental changes in spending in america and they came out with a budget that did just the opposite. and he told the american people what they wanted to hear. but it wasn't the truth. >> greta: all right. just to zero in, there is a big difference between being mistaken or i mean, having a different viewpoint and trying to be deceitful and a lie. that's very different. where does he fall in the
10:06pm
spectrum, in your opinion? >> i gave him a chance at the hearing -- he had already said the statements publicly. i quoted them back to him. he said it was accurate. he defended those statements, although i will acknowledge that secretary geithner who followed him would not say so. he knew that wasn't accurate. he acknowledged that the president's budget didn't put us on a sustainable path, but not mr. lew. he continued to spin and repeat those statemented and the president was running ads on it in september right before the election, saying the same thing, that his budget paid down the debt. it is absolutely not true. >> greta: is there anything jack lew could say at a hearing that would redeem him in your eyes? >> well, we would see. i mean, he will have an opportunity to do that. but fundamentally, from eating a little crow is not going to satisfy my feeling about it because i think he knew exactly
10:07pm
what he was doing. he should have told the president, i cannot say that, mr. president. i will not say that. i valid to resign before i go out before the committee and try to promote such an idea that our budget is going to pay down the debt. >> greta: well, you have been quoted as saying he will never be secretary of the treasury. do you think that he won't be voted by the committee and voted -- confirmed by the senate? >> well, greta, i said that i felt he must never be. we will see, the full senate will decide. i will just have one vote on it. but i do think that the senate needs to -- push back against this idea that people can come before our committees and say anything they want to, inaccurately and then waltz in two years later and be promoted to the most significant financial office in our country, really in the world, the secretary of treasury. we shouldn't treat that lightly.
10:08pm
he needs to be held to account in my opinion. if -- so i -- that's my strong feeling about it. >> greta: i tell you, you are not alone. and senator bernie sanders has indicated he will not vote for him, that he will vote no, for very different reasons. he believes he is too cozy with wall street -- cozy is my term, want the word the senator used. on the other end, he will have trouble, too. i am curious, though, looking at the hearing, a step back and looking at what will ask who and how. i see this as one that will give the republicans the opportunity to grill him about the president's plan for the future, the economy, something that the republicans have been saying that they haven't gotten under the president so far. is this going to be a grilling of this candidate, about the president's policies? >> well, it absolutely should be an opportunity to inquire of hem
10:09pm
about the basic principles of this administration. why have they not proposed any solution to our -- our entitlement program? why have they not respond to the law that requires them to lay out a plan to fix medicare, when it gets in financial trouble. it's been certified to be in trouble. the president should be -- have laid out a plan. he has flatly refused to comply with the law. maybe they will ask him why he supported harry reid not bringing up a budget. he supported that and said, you could filibuster a budget. and he well knows, mr. lew, you can't filibuster a budget. it can be passed with a simple majority. i think there are a lot of questions and matter that says could be inquired of at his manager. >> greta: he will have a problem, apparently from senator orrin hatch, the ranking member on the -- on the finance committee because senator hatch has said he's withholding
10:10pm
judgment, he hasn't said "yes" or "no," until the nominee outlines the administration plans to cut spenning, to lower the national debt. so you can see that senator hatch, you know, intends -- that whole business about -- the whole issue of spending cuts -- this -- this nomination hearing is going to be the forum about that particular issue, just like the debt ceiling. >> i think he can be. i think the reason they never brought up a budget is because the democrats would have had to -- defend openly in public debate an unsupportable, indefensible plan that their president was promoting. and they would have had to follow it or reject it. and of course, when lew's budget was brought before the senate and the house, if you remember, greta, it got zero votes -- not a republican or a committee in the -- or a democrat in the house or the senate voted for a bill that mr. lew was the
10:11pm
architect of. i don't think that speaks well for a man who would take on the position of treasury secretary. >> greta: president obama says he facilitates deal, citing president reagan and speaker o'neill on social security and president clinton and a republican congress on the issue of a budget deal. i am curious whether you agree that he has brought the two sides together. if so, where has that been in the last go-round, the last 18 months? >> the last fiscal cliff deal, he -- his chief of staff at the white house, he was involved in the negotiations. they went nowhere until senator mccog urged vice-president bide tone get involved. that's when an agreement was reached. it wasn't jack lew that reached that agreement. he also, when he agreed to the budget spending reductions as part of the budget control act, 18 months ago, he -- he proposed a budget, the next budget that
10:12pm
they put forward, wiped out 60% of those cuts, even though he agreed to them in august and january, he was proposing to giving back 60% of them and spending more money -- >> greta: i guess it's pretty clear -- i guess it's pretty clear you have a strong opinion on this one? >> i really do. i can never forget that hearing. it was one of the most dramatic things i have ever participated in. when the office of management and budget looked us in the eye and insisted that they were correctly -- they were correct in saying their budget would have paid down the debt, when it did not. >> greta: senator, always nice to see you. thank you, sir. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: if jack lew becomes treasury secretary, our economy will be in his hands. but can most americans pick lew out of a lineup in griff jenkins hit the ground tow find out. >>
10:13pm
>> reporter: his decisions will impact the livelihoods of every one of us. but does anyone know who he is? any idea who that is. >> i don't know. >> reporter: does he look familiar? >> bill o'reilly. >> i'll go with him. >> reporter: another crook? >> another crook. >> reporter: who is that man? >> , a recently arrived in the u.s., so the answer's no. >> reporter: that doesn't excuse you. hey, man. any guess who this is? >> he's not jewish. >> reporter: you think it looks like me?
10:14pm
>> yes. >> reporter: it looks like me. hold that. let's see. all right. you can tell me who this is? any anybody? wild guess. anybody? any idea who this is? come back here. who is this person? can you get? >> the new treasury secretary. >> reporter: what's his name? >> his name is lew. >> reporter: very good. >> new treasury, right. >> reporter: new treasury secretary. >> secretary. >> reporter: would you trust a man whose signature, turn this around, would you trust a man with that signature in. >> no. >> no. >> reporter: you trust a guy who signs his name like that. >> gobegged-gook there. >> ooh. >> oh, my. >> is that for real? >> noooo. >> it looks like something a two-year-old could have drawn. >> it looks like a two-year-old. he should have been back in
10:15pm
penmanship. >> i think he might want to consider doing what geithner did and change it and make it more official looking. >> reporter: you are the most informed washingtonian here. you knew that geithner changed his signature. there is hope. someone knows all the right answers. [laughter] >> greta: this is a fox news alert. the colorado movie massacre suspect will go to trial. a short time ago, a colorado judge ruling there is enough evidence for james holmes to stand trial on all 166 counts. he is accused of opening fire in a midnight showing of a batman movie. 12 people were gunned down and murdered. 70 injured. his arraignment is set for tomorrow. but his lawyers may ask for a delay. stay with fox newschannel on the latest on this breaking news. >> and now, to sex, lies and an accused of savagely murdering her ex-boyfriend in the shower caught in more lies today?
10:16pm
she has changed her story three times since her arrest. now prosecutors are trying to show her before the jury as being a serial liar. take a look at this testimony. >> what did she tell you about those cuts? >> she worked at margaritaville... and i guess she broke a glass. >> is there a business establishment, a bar, restaurant by the name of margaritaville? >> no, sir. >> so there is no restaurant by the name of margaritaville. >> no, sir. >> how about in the whole of the county, is there a restaurant by the name of margaritaville? >> no, sir. >> greta: also in the arizona courtroom, jurors watching an interview with ""inside edition,"" right after she was indicted for murder. >> all the evidence is very compelling. >> what really happened in there? >> in a nutshell, two people took travis' life, two monsters.
10:17pm
>> you did not shoot travis. >> vinever shot a real gun. >> you didn't stab him 27 times. >> that's heinous. >> slit his throat from ear to ear. >> i can't imagine slitting anyone's throat. >> no jury will convict me. >> why not? >> i am not. no jury will convict me. >> greta: trio troy haden is live. you can put the margaritaville comment in context? why was the prosecution asking those questions? >> she said she was working in margaritaville and dropped a glass and got the cuts and not in the knife fight with the terrible murder. she is a liar. the jury knows that. she told three stories about how the murder happened. she said two strange guys did it and also that, oh, yeah, i did it, but it was self-defense. everyone knows she's a liar and a killer. but the question is now, is it
10:18pm
first-degree murder? will she get the death penalty? >> greta: it's beyond beyond a reasonable doubt, when someone starts changing a story three times and both are preposterous, it seems unlikely she will be found not guilty. but she is still presumed innocent. do you have any sense of the defense? there has been a suggestion of self-defense. but has the defense attorneys thrown in the towel? are they trying to spare her life or trying to get her -- does it seem like they believe they will -- that they have a defense, a viable one? >> yeah. i don't know what they believe. but here's what they are trying to do. travis alexander was shot, he was stabbed and his throat was slit. the defense was saying he was shot first, much smaller woman, much larger man. he didn't stop. he kept coming after her and then she stabbed him and she slit his throat and that ended it. >> the prosecution's saying she stabbed him and in a heinous, terrible, depraved act shot him
10:19pm
in the head when he was already dead and that's the strategy. >> what's her demeanor, as she listens to the man that she hooked up with the day after the disceddent died. what was her demeanor? >> she doesn't show a lot of emotion. when the ""inside edition"" interview came up and she said, mark my words, no jury will convict me. she is not assuming a tossen emotion. we are talking about somebody who committed -- admitted to this killing. and 24 hours later, she's on a first date at chilis with another guy. maybe there are two jodis here. >> greta: you can't predict what the jury's thinking. but we look to see how they respond. i take it they are paying close attention and no sense -- they're not smirking or showing disgust or laughing or anything else, right? >> i mean, they have amazing poker faces. i was talking about that with
10:20pm
somebody else. they keep a very calm demeanor on the outside. you the only time i saw a real emotion was pictures of travis alexander's body. i have been around a lot of court cases over the years. i haven't seen much like this. it was a very, very violent killing. >> greta: troy, thank you. >> you got it, greta. >> greta: straight ahead, shocking news in the mysterious disappearance of a fashion mogul's plane? did the plane really crash? hear what his son is now saying? a school district rocked by controversy. a teacher throws an american flag on the floor and stomps on it, all in front of the children. one of the children is here and she will tell you all about it. it's starting, big news about paul ryan. is he running for president in 2016? find out what he just said. searing for a bank designed for investors like you? tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 schwab bank was built with all e value and convenience tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 investors want. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like no atm fees, worldwide. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550

>> obamacare may be the law of the land, but the fight over the mandate for contraception coverage is not over. listen to this, virginia attorney general ken cuccinelli saying opponents should be willing to go to jail to fight it. on the radio says he supports the lawsuit of hobby lobby stores against the contraception mandate. >> i think you're going to see more hobby lobbies out there and plenty of people are suing, but i think, you know, part of this is the attack on the catholic church and my local bishop said, well, you know, i told the group i'm ready to go to jail. and i said bishop don't take this personally, you need to go to be ready to go to jail and people need to see it play out all the way to its logical conclusion and this guy is making them do it.
10:25pm
god bless them. >> attorney general cuccinelli quoting abraham lincoln, the best way to get rid after bad law is to enforce it vigorously. >> and no sign of the plane carrying fashion mogul vit t vittorio missoni. and did it crash? the son insisted the plane going down in the water is the least mrauzable explanation for his father's disappearance. what does he by that? and the reporter is in caracas venezuela. >> they've been searching for almost a week for some sign of what happened to the plane. absolutely no sign whatsoever of any wreckage. the archipelago lines off 50 miles of venezuela, it's a short flight, less than an
10:26pm
hour in a small plane even such as the one gone missing, but that's a very large area of sea to search and they've been using boats and using divers and they've been using planes and come up with nothing so far. >> greta: i take it, this is a small plane so not carry a lot of fuel, but i take it there's no sort of fuel slick on the tor top of the water, nothing to indicate the plane went down. >> nothing at all. the last communication with the plane, and coming back to the venezuela mainland was ten nautical miles away from the archipelago and no sign at that time there was any distress signal or anything like that. so the authorities really have nothing to go on in terms of where to look, where they might find wreckage or anything of that kind. well, the son says of the mogul, says it's the least plausible theory that the plane went down. what are his plausible theories, if you know.
10:27pm
>> it's interesting that 48 hours after the plane went missing, the son of one of the other passengers on the plane received a text message from his father that said, call now, we're available. and this sort of brought everybody who was looking for them, already looking for the people on the plane, a great sense of hope, they thought perhaps they are somewhere to be found. one of the rumors, the plane was hijacked, kidnapped, kidnapping in venezuela is a fairly regular occurrence, but usually happens in a carjacking, people taken in their cars and held for hours, sometimes held for days, weeks or months. it wouldn't be heard of for a kidnapping to take place for a ransom. but of course for it to happen to a plane, that's unheard of. we've never heard of that. >> greta: missing under that theory is a ransom. if you're kidnapping for a ransom you make a communication, give me the money or else and they've received no ransom request, right? >> exactly. there's been nothing of that
10:28pm
kind. no other communication whatsoever other than this one text message last sunday. >> greta: what would the -- what was the fashion mogul doing in venezuela? i understand he lives in italy. >> he does, but there are a lot of italian immigrants to venezuela, a big italian population here and archipelago, a lot of the guest house there is are run by italian families, a very popular destination for italians, not surprising he would choose it. it's known as a luxury destination, the jewel in the crown of venezuela's tourist offerings, you know, white sand beaches, tourquoise seas and high end, and not surprising to spend the new years holiday there. >> greta: very strange, and the search will continue? they have they're not calling it off yet. >> it seems to be coming to a close, they had sop help, some
10:29pm
of the antilles island close by sent ships to search, but with no sign, it sounds as if soon perhaps within the next 24 hours they'll be wrapping up the search operation. >> greta: just curious, the geography lesson, not that far from other islands. how far, for instance, from aruba? >> aruba is a little further away, to the west, but from curacou, it's not isolated, but if there are no ships passing, a plane could crash out of the sky, and no one would find it. a big area of sea to search. >> greta: sarah, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> greta: he emotional day for south carolina governor nikki haley, her husband michael is it in the national guard and today left for one month of training and then deploy to afghanistan. during today's send-off for the south carolina guard unit captain michael haley saying

10:33pm
>> a south carolina teacher's behavior sparking outrage. get this, the high school teacher threw an american flag on the floor and then he stomped all over it and it was in front of his students. of course, parents, well, are angry and the teacher could get fired. michael cokeland's daughter was in the classroom when it happened and he joins us along with his daughter maggie. welcome to both of you, michael and maggie, good to
10:34pm
see you. >> thank you very much. >> greta: maggie, let me start with you since you were in the classroom. tell me what you saw. what happened? >> well he was teaching us about symbols and gave us an example such as a cross that symbolizes christianity and then he took the flag and he said that it was just a symbol of america and a piece of cloth with colors on it. and then he threw it on the ground and stomped on it. >> greta: what was the reaction, maggie, of the students in the classroom, watching it did anyone say anything to him? >> yeah, we were all very shocked and he even made a comment afterwards, he said that at least we reacted better than his other class. he had a girl scream in the other class. >> greta: is he a teacher that's typically well-liked by the students? >> by some of them. i wouldn't say by all of them though. >> greta: michael, how did you find out about this? >> well, we're getting ready
10:35pm
to have dinner one night and maggie made a comment like mr. compton stepping on the american flag and i said what do you mean. she said, yeah, he stepped on the flag and i said when? and she said i didn't tell you about this? i said no. and i said start from the beginning. tell me exactly what happened. so she tells me the story just like she said, as far as like what he did, what happened and i said, well, what was the whole point this have? i mean, was there something he was trying to teach and she said i really don't remember anything. i said was he getting overexcited in the moment of saying something? she said oh, no, he did this in two of his other classes. >> greta: what did you do, michael, contact anybody call the teacher and say what's up with this? >> what i did first. i was very, very upset. i mean, i was just really to the point of shaking when she first told me this. so, i just did not want to act, overreact at the very beginning, i went through the
10:36pm
course of the rest of the week and asking the same questions over, what happened again? tell me again. 'cause i wanted to make sure she was certain, oh, yes, this happened. on thursday morning-- i found out monday night and thursday morning i sent an e-mail to the district student and i copied the members of the school board who were elected into office as well as the local news, wif. and i also sent a copy of it to various groups like my old rotary club and boy scout units i'm involved with and i sent the story about what happened and what she had told me. and i sent that and the very first person that was responded was the superintendent and he said he was not aware of this. this is the first he's heard of it and he would immediately investigate this. and he added that he too, was a veteran and that he did not agree with what may have happened. so the very next morning on
10:37pm
friday morning i received an e-mail from him stating that on the initial investigation, that he had suspended the teacher, or placed him on administrative leave and that a further investigation was underway. >> greta: maggie, did the teacher ever come back like the next day or something and say anything about it at all? >> no, he never mentioned it again. >> greta: michael, maggie, thank you both very much. >> thank you very much, greta. >> thank you. >> greta: and the feature of scott compton's teaching career is now of course in the hands of the school board after receiving lots of complaints from irate parents and the board spent weeks investigating what really happened in the high school classroom and interviewed mr. compton to complete the investigation. are they closer to finding out what happened to the flag or the decision about mr. compton's job. and mark is the spokesman for the district. he joins us, mark, in terms of what happened, when you spoke to the teacher, did the teacher say essentially what
10:38pm
maggie recount what had happened? i guess we have a little problem with his audio. which makes it exceedingly difficult to find out what the the reaction was, but just to sort of recap what happened in the school district is that the teacher stepped on the flag and the students were a little bit distracted or they found it disheartening and reported to their parents and now the parents have gotten upset, at least some of the parents, some are rhett advance, at least mark. tell me with the teachers, what happened in the classroom? >> greta, i can't give you specifics because the superintendent has recommended the teacher for termination so obviously the teacher may have some legal recourse. i can tell you immediately upon hearing this we put the teacher on administrative leave while we conducted a full investigation. we want today make sure we heard all the facts before we move forward and the facts
10:39pm

stop pretending. only flood insurance covers floods. ♪ visit floodsmart.gov/pretend to learn your risk. >> this is very disturbing about concussions in the nfl. according to a new study by the national institutes of health. former star linebacker junior seau had a brain disease when he committed suicide. it's associated with repeated blows to the head. the nfl is facing lawsuits by many former football players and they withheld the harmful effects of concussion. and mark from sports illustrated joins us. mark, tell me about this development with this player, what it's going to mean to the nfl? >> well, this is the latest in a series of events that have brought head trauma and
10:46pm
concussions to the forefront of the nfl and junior seau is the most prominent player linked with this issue, 20-year nfl veteran, future hall-of-famer for sure and just a guy who loves the game, always had a smile on his face, when he was playing, and just, you know, very young and took his own life and this is just raised serious issues about what these repeated hits to the heads that nfl players are suffering what, that means for them long-term. >> greta: during the course of his professional career, were there reported concussions? >> this is the really interesting thing. junior seau was never officially diagnosed with a concussion over his entire 20 year career. that's not to say he didn't suffer serious blows to the head. every nfl player who plays for a significant period of time does. and the problem was there was no real protocol in the nfl for diagnosing concussions for a long time. this is a situation where a guy who would just shake it
10:47pm
off and go back on the field. it's only in the last couple of years the nfl has gotten really serious about diagnosing concussions on the field and preventing players from coming back on the field after they've suffered injury. so, you know, this is just an issue that is going to be plaguing the nfl for a long time. we've got 4,000 players suing the league, former players suing the league based on their medical condition right now. >> greta: now, in terms of him, i mean, you said that he's always got a smile on his face, every time we see a picture of him. the family say anything peculiar about it over the period of time. >> he retired a few years ago, and the normal life of a celebrity athlete were difficult. there were some issues where he was, you know, apparently sleep deprived and behaving somewhat erratically. the problem is linking all of that behavior with head trauma is very difficult. he might just have been suffering from depression, which is nothing to do with what happened, what was going
10:48pm
on with his nfl career, so this is a lot more study that needs to be done on this issue. >> greta: and of course, the fact that there are others that have committed suicide has put the spotlight on it as well. mark, thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: straight ahead, congressman paul ryan talks 2016. what is he saying about a possible presidential run? we'll find out next. also, family's desperation is growing. still no word from an american journalist kidnapped in syria. the family is pleading for his the family is pleading for his return and his brother hey, our salads.

10:54pm
which is kind of the irony. but we really don't know much more than that, unfortunately. >> greta: and how long had he been in the region? >> jim's been in and out of syria for over a year. this most recent trip he hadn't been there all that long. maybe a couple of weeks and he was nearing -- he was a couple weeks away from returning to the u.s. for the holidays, which just makes it a little more difficult. >> greta: i take it that the u.s. government is helping new some way and i take it that the point of now speaking out is hoping to put a spotlight on it and encourage anybody who might have information to come forward or even to encourage the government to be more aggressive to find your brother, is that a fair description? >> no, i don't think that's a fair description. to me, there is a lack of information that we are, we are seeking, but my main purpose is i want to remind people who are viewing this
10:55pm
broadcast that jim's an objective and innocent journalist, he was just doing his job over there, we appeal to the people who are holding him to release him unharmed, to communicate with us, to let us know that he's okay, and i'd like to mention a website we've set up free james foley.org for folks to visit and anyone that has information may share. >> greta: what is it that makes your brother want to do work like this? people always ask that about journalists to put themselves in danger. why does your brother want to do that? >> that's a great question. i sit behind a desk every day. and he is just passionate about the stories. you know, the humanity, you know, the personal stories that are involved and it just draws him back to it. i think he really feels strongly about bringing a voice to what's going on in some of the conflict zones and it's just in his dna. >> greta: you know, so many of my colleagues, now, covering
